Keeping the Spark in Your Marriage During Wedding Season

Tis the season of weddings, gifts and receptions.
Weddings are a joyful and exciting event to take part in. As a married couple, who have been through the planning, preparation and excitement of your wedding day you understand what it takes to get down that aisle and say “I Do.” You also know what work it can take to keep that marriage going strong.
During this wedding season use these romantic and exciting events to keep the spark alive in your own marriage. On days you have weddings to attend, talk with your spouse about your wedding day and the good memories you have of that day. Treat yourselves to a pre or post wedding date just for the two of you. Hold hands during the ceremony and think about your vows and how far you’ve come as a couple. Request your wedding song at the reception and dance like it’s your first dance all over again. Book a hotel for the night and escape, just the two of you, to celebrate your love.
All these little things add up and can ignite the spark within your own relationship and help strengthen your connection with one another. As you attend weddings this season, not only focus on the newlyweds but put the focus back on your relationship and vows you said to each other.
If you find the spark missing from your relationship FamilyMeans can help. Our therapists can help couples identify their issues and build upon strengths to get you back to where you want to be with your spouse.
